HC Deb 14 June 1979 vol 968 c267W
Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to review the working of the present prison parole system.

Mr. Whitelaw

I have noted the recommendation of the Fifteenth Report from the Expenditure Committee and, whilst I accept that the time would seem to be ripe for a public debate on parole, I am considering how best this might be achieved.
